In our next release, scheduled for June 24, 2020, we will deprecate the TLS 1.0 and 1.1 protocols from the Roar application itself.

All browsers used for Roar and tools interacting with our API will need to support at least TLS 1.2.

Feature Updates

Clone Actionable Alert Templates

Users can now clone Actionable Alert templates. To learn more, please review our documentation on how to Clone an Existing Template.

Conditions and Priority Columns added to Rules Library

A column for rule conditions and priorities now exists in the Rules Library. This will allow users to view and filter rule conditions and priorities in one place.

Inspector Updates

Azure Active Directory Inspector

  • Added platform mapping for IT Glue and ConnectWise
  • Updated error log messages for calls to the Graph API that fail due to missing API scopes
  • Added graceful handling for Intune license-dependent endpoints which make it possible to inspect a tenant that lacks an active license

Update to Network Discovery Inspector in Beta Stage

Currently, our team is building more capabilities into our Network Discovery Inspector. To test our most recent beta version, you can change your Network Discovery Inspector's Version to 1.1.0-20200604 in your Inspector's configuration details.

To test the beta version of the Inspector, please review our documentation.

Improvements include:

  • Improved the Network Discovery Inspector's host discovery algorithm to more effectively discover hosts on the network.
  • Updated the Network Discovery Inspector's input to allow for IP ranges in any size subnet, not just /24 networks. Also, updated the input format to make it easier to input ranges.

IT Glue Inspector

  • The IT Glue Inspector now auto-discovers Internet Domain Inspectors from domains in IT Glue
  • Removed some unnecessary calls to the IT Glue API
  • Improved Inspector logging

Office 365

  • Improved performance and reliability of the Office 365 Inspector by removing a call to retrieve message rules for Office 365 users that are not mail-enabled
  • Modified a number of Office 365 Metrics to reliably return integers for cleaner display in Roar and BrightGauge
  • Updated the “Office 365: Assigned License Summary” Metric to be easier to read

Bug Fixes and Minor Updates

  • Updated terminology in the rule builder from "Launchpoint" to "System"
